Last year, just a few days before his third birthday, Jude was discovered to have neuroblastoma, a rare an aggressive form of cancer which affects 100 children in the UK each year.

He is part way through his treatment, with his course having seen him treated at both Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Weston Park Hospital.

But there is concern now over what happens when that treatment ends. His family are looking to raise £350,000 to send him to America for an experimental course of therapy they hope will significantly reduce the chances of his cancer returning in the future.

His dad Arron is a dear friend of mine who came through the Sheffield Wednesday academy around the same time as me. His continued efforts alongside his wife Lucy have been extraordinary. As a dad myself I cannot begin to imagine how they feel/felt at times along what must seem a never ending road. Their strength and courage not only for Jude but each other is truly remarkable.

I hope by me doing this small fundraising gesture. It will allow Jude, Arron and Lucy to reach their target that little bit sooner.

We are all behind you. Keep strong. Remain positive.

Love Palms ❤️
